By Comparison: Heating Up Just In Time

Two games into the Rockies four-game series with the Phillies, they have moved ahead of the Cardinals in the battle for the second NL wild-card spot, and they have done it in style. Their 20 runs scored equals the seventh-highest total in a series this year, and the six series in which the Rockies scored more runs were three- or four-game series. The Rockies have two games remaining in the Phillies series. Having allowed three earned runs in the two games, the ERA so far is the fourth lowest in a series this season, and their .370 batting average is the second highest.
